Physical Graffiti is definitely up there, but I finally found a copy of In Through the Out Door and I haven't been able to turn it off so far. Picking just one is tough, but if I could only choose one it would be Houses of the Holy probably. I think I posted something like this in the "Top 5" thread, but if I had to rate them I'd probably go:
Houses of the Holy -- The three opening tracks, The Ocean, Dancing Days, and Dyer Maker?
III -- I've just always loved the sound of it for some reason
II -- I don't know why, but I love this one too. I don't know a lot about music but to me the bass work -- and of course guitar -- are just incredible.
Physical Graffiti -- You pretty much nailed it.
In Through the Out Door -- South Bound Suarez, Fool in the Rain, and Hot Dog are the best threesome this side of HOTH, but Carouselambra and I'm Gonna Crawl aren't too shabby.
I -- As I've said before, very underrated and a spectacular first effort.
IV -- I know it's sacrilege, but oh well
Presence -- I didn't particularly care for it at first, but it's definitely growing on me.
I don't consider Coda one of their albums really, but it's not bad either.
I've also been getting into the live stuff a lot lately. I don't really care for live stuff generally (at all), but I got How the West was Won a couple weeks ago and it hasn't found it's way out of my stereo yet. I've also been wanting to get the complete BBC recordings, but don't have the $$$ at the moment.
Guess that was a little more than you were looking for huh?
